We loved this tour especially our tour guide, Gustavo. He was funny, and informative and covered a lot of ground in a short period of time. He was very hospitable and really took care of all of us in our small group tour. We especially appreciated the egg custard deserts that he bought. Afterwards, we felt we really had a better understanding of the city and history of Portugal. Take this tour, and ask for Gustav!
Ricardo was a wonderful tour guide. We had an great day and first time experience in Lisbon.
It was a very good tour, the quide tour was very professional and took the time to go over things and answer all questions . We had around 1.15 hours spare time and he took us to a beautiful restaurant by the river. Sight seeing was fabulous Portagul is truly a beautiful country.
We saw the whole of Lisbon in this one day tour. It was so amazing. Our guide is so awesome that I can't find words to describe him because he went beyond his duty and more to make our day really wonderful.I highly recommend it.
I would highly recommend this tour. Our guide Joke Langens gave as a great balance of information and autonomy. She had a great spirit and enthusiasm about her that made the whole thing a great experience. The highlights included lunch at a spot frequented by locals, plus a good amount of insider recommendations. 5 stars!
Highly recommend this tour. Our guide Andrea was wonderful, extremely knowledgeable on the country's history and a very pleasant person to spend the day with. In a single day you hit most of the main attractions, Belem Tower, Jeronimos Monastery, St. George castle, etc. Plus you eat at a wonderful non-touristy restaurant for lunch.
My favorite tour in Lisbon! My guide, Andreia, was amazing. She was friendly and informative. As a small tour, it felt like going out to tour with good friends. This was one of the best experiences I had in Portugal.
The guide was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the day.
This was a very informative and educational tour. The tour guide was personable and knowledgeable. Great history lessons.
Guide very knowledgeable, spoke great English and enjoyable personality. We only had one day in Lisbon and this tour gave us the opportunity to see it all. The only negative is that the air conditioning did not properly cool the third row of seats and one window did not open, so the rear was very warm.
